Chicken Tacos

Even finicky eaters love "Taco Night" because they can add toppings to suit their tastes. In this chicken taco recipe, the chicken is coated with taco seasoning and then stir-fried, so the zesty flavor really shines through.

    I made these, but I already had cooked shredded chicken. So I coated this chicken with the taco seasoning and I sauteed the onions and the green pepper in the 3 TBSP of butter and added the seasoned chicken. Worked just fine. Quick and easy to make.

    This is one of my favorite ways to have tacos. We use soft flour tortillas instead of taco shells...really like this stuff, especially when it is served with the tomato and avacado salad shown in the picture or down below in the serve with section...SUPER YUMMY!!!!
